Princess Eugenie chokes up in emotional message to doctors that saved her father-in-law's life

Princess Eugenie has sent a touching message to the doctors that saved her father-in-law's life as he finally returns home following coronavirus battle.

Princess Eugenie has taken to Instagram to thank NHS staff at Brompton Hospital for saving her husband Jack Brooksbank's father George's life.

Eugenie's father-in-law was on a ventilator for five weeks after catching the deadly virus, but now he has finally returned home and is being dubbed the "miracle man".

Jack Brooksbank's 71-year-old father was diagnosed with coronavirus back in April and spent time on a ventilator in intensive care as he fought the deadly virus.

At the time he was said to be "in a serious but stable condition".
